Tips

Predefined person filters like 'whole database' or 'ancestors of person X' as well as custom person filters like 'persons with tag Y' are used for filtering. By filtering different person groups or ancestor lines via person filters, it is possible to add different images to different lines of your ancestor tree. Please note that the Avatar Generator Tool only adds images to persons without media references within a selected group of people. Persons who already have media references are ignored.

Furthermore, it is possible to remove images from a group of filtered persons. In order to do so, the Avatar Generator Tool searches through the selected list of filtered people and removes the chosen image or images.
